As you may recall, about a week ago we were abruptly reminded that it is perhaps unwise to approach a Presidential debates as an exercise in Socratic discourse....Good news! Joe Biden is the anti-Socrates.
The most important thing that many people forget about Biden is the fact that he is unfailingly AUTHENTIC.
I can't emphasize that point enough. The thing about Biden that the political elites don't appreciate is the fact that he has a sterling trait that you cannot fake - he absolutely exudes an aura of being a genuinely "good guy".
Yeah, you may shake your head at his hair plugs and his gaffes but, damn it, there is no getting around the fact that, deep down, he truly gives a shit about what truly matters. And mark my words, when "average Undecided Voter Joe' contrasts this persona against 'Soulless Wonk', it will be 'no contest'....
